By Abeth Encarnacion, Festival Campground Safety Volunteer

It was a hot summer of 2010. The clock was ticking extra slow that day but when it finally struck 3:30, it was official. I rushed out of work, bolted straight to my packed 98 Civic and raced down 59. Windows down, sun gleaming, Slurpee in my hand, wind blowing, Biggie pumping in the background and not a single cloud in the sky - a perfect day for my very first Folk Fest.

Folk for Families

Children love folk music too! There’s no time like the present to get our wee folk in the festival spirit! Local family performers will have little ones singing, dancing, and learning, all while having fun.

The first time you hear someone yell “Happy Folk Fest!” followed by a roar of cheers that rolls across the campground, you’ll feel right at home.
